     The em driver supports IPv4 receive IP/TCP/UDP checksum offload and
     transmit TCP/UDP checksum offload on all but 82542-based adapters, VLAN
     tag insertion and stripping, and jumbo frames on all but 82562V,
     82566DC/82566DM and 82573E/82573L/82573V-based adapters.  The 82562V Eth-
     ernet controller chip only supports 10/100 media types.

     The em driver supports the following media types:

           autoselect  Enables auto-negotiation for speed and duplex.

           10baseT mediaopt full-duplex
                       Sets 10Mbps operation.

           100baseTX mediaopt full-duplex
                       Sets 100Mbps operation.

           1000baseLX  Sets 1000Mbps operation.  Only full-duplex mode is sup-
                       ported at this speed.

           1000baseSX  Sets 1000Mbps operation.  Only full-duplex mode is sup-
                       ported at this speed.

           1000baseT   Sets 1000Mbps operation.  Only full-duplex mode is sup-
                       ported at this speed.

     For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).

HISTORY
     The em device driver first appeared in OpenBSD 3.2.

AUTHORS
     The em driver was written by Intel Corporation.

BUGS
     There are known performance issues with this driver when running UDP
     traffic with jumbo frames.

     There is a known compatibility issue where time to link is slow or link
     is not established between 82541/82547 controllers and some switches.
     Known switches include:

           I-O Data ETG-SH8
           Planex FXG-08TE
